Motor control unit limits wiring errors

Issue: May 2018

DPE These two-phase step motors from Günther Heisskanaltechnik GmbH can individually control as many as 16 needles of a hot-runner system. They are equipped with corresponding encoders for self-referencing and fault identification. In the U.S., LHR represents the Frankenberg an der Eder, Germany, company.

What’s new? A new control unit, available in a variety of versions with different numbers of channels. All versions feature a central 7-inch touch screen that shows the real-time transversal position of all stepper channels in control.

Benefits Ease of use. The motor wiring has been reduced, minimizing wiring mistakes during connection.
